1 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here for a night and almost every half hour from 9pm to 3am the power cut off for a minute and then came back on. It was uncomfortable as lights went too and there were no back up lights when it happened. Only one English Channel. Breakfast buffet was dreadful. Staff were very friendly and nice.

We stayed at the Grand Durmaz in March 2014. The hotel is located ~50M from the tram station "Aksaray", which is a 15 minute trip (four stops) from the Peninsula sites "Hayia Sofia" and the "Topkapı Palace". The hotel is clean, quite and kept in good order. The staff were very friendly and helpful, in a courteous and sincere way.... More

Hotel location is good for shoppers. An improvements of sound proofing is a must since the noise from the street can be very annoying. Room carpet is stained and need major cleaning or replacement. The bed is acceptable and comfortable. The worst of all was the attitude of the hotel manager Mr. Mehmet who acts as if he is the... More

Great location and staff were too friendly and the price was fair. Too near to the tramvay station and new hotel with nice breakfast served in buffet. I suggest this hotel to everybody looks for a clean, fair price and super location hotel.

My girlfriend and I just spent 5 days/4 nights at Grand Durmaz. Since the very first moment we got into our standard room (which costs 180 euros per night), we noticed the room was narrow and had a small window with a 'nice view' of a wall, so we immediately called the reception and asked for a change. On the... More

Hotel is located at Aksarai tram station, it's ok if you're going to the city center, but it's also surrounded by Laleli district, it's if you're living in the center of Grand Bazaar, so put your wishes about nice restaurant here aside, and stay for your meal at the city center. Hotel itself is nice, rooms are big and nicely... More
